Your next CD player may be a computer
The Symphony looks and acts just like a CD player, but underneath is actually a personal computer with the sole purpose of managing and distributing your music files. Review by Gary Krakow.


...CDs are handled by a Panasonic CD-R/RW drive. When the Symphony rips tracks, it can record into AIFF, WAV, FLAC, MP3 and MP3 VBR files.  It can play what it records as well as PCM, ACC, OGG and WMA files. 



I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just gonna ask them where they're going and hook up with them later. - Mitch Hedberg

I agree that it's cool, especially with the digital outputs.  this part was real funny though

Through the digital outs, the Symphony sounded even better. But then again, I was listening through two expensive DACs (Digital Audio Controllers) which cost more than the Symphony itself.

if he spent so much money on DACs, you'd think he knew that it's "digital to analog converter" and not "digital audio controller"  :)
